SCHOFIELD, Wis. (WAOW) -

Merrill Steel, based in Schofield, is providing and installing the steel for the new Las Vegas Stadium in a joint venture with Mortenson | McCarthy, according to a press release from the company. 

The stadium will be the new home of the Raiders, who are expected to move from Oakland in 2020.

“This large and complex project is a perfect fit for our business model,” Fred Schwalbach, President of Merrill Steel, said.  “Merrill has been a key fabricator for many professional sports stadiums, and we are excited to be adding the state-of-the-art Las Vegas Stadium to our portfolio.”

The stadium will cost $1.9 billion to build. It will hold up to 72,000 seats, a retractable natural-grass playing field, and an operable wall to open to views of the Las Vegas Strip.

It will also host the University of Nevada Rebels football program, as well as other entertainment events.

Merrill Steel has locations in Schofield, Wis, and Springfield, Mo.
